Below is from the Family Research Council and the California Family Council:
California State Senator Wiener and the ACLU want to legalize sex work in California, and they are working towards that goal by trying to pass SB 357, which would repeal loitering laws related to prostitution, even for those who are purchasing or selling sex.
Senate Bill 357 does not protect those who are at greater risk for sexual exploitation, but instead, allows sex buyers and pimps to operate with impunity. This bill will simply increase the demand for sex trafficking, causing further harm to the victims and all citizens of California.
The California Family Council has been working to organize opposition against SB 357, a bill to legalize loitering for the purpose of prostitution: streetwalking. One of the experts helping us in that fight is Dr. Stephany Powell, the Director of Law Enforcement Training and Survivor Services with the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, a 30-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department.
She recently did an interview with radio host Don Dix, with AM 590, explaining how SB 357 cripples law enforcement’s ability to stop sex trafficking happening right out in the open.
“[SB 357] also repeals law enforcement’s ability to make contact by arrest or by citing sex buyers, who would be loitering for the purposes of prostitution,” Powell said.
“We need you to call your own assemblymember. People need to know that we do not need this not only in marginalized communities but in any community in California,” Powell urges.
The goal of the bill “is to pave the way to full decriminalization of prostitution,” she explained.
If you oppose legalizing prostitution, please contact your State Senator urging him or her to vote no on Senate Bill 357. Then, contact your representative in the State Assembly, in the event this bill passes the State Senate.

California, leading the nation down the sewer. Sex and drugs and rock n roll, those boomers have their diabolical wish list almost completed.
The hatred for humanity that exists in the California legislature is really breath taking. The satanic influence is unmistakable. What’s really remarkable is the way they’ve completely stopped attempting to veil their intentions with sleight of hand and vague meaningless language. They just come right out and say what they want to do with no sense of self awareness at all.
“Gay” State Sen. Scott Weiner– along with the filthy, immoral, liberal ACLU– constantly advocate for completely abolishing decency and morality in California. Weiner would especially love to see gay sex available everywhere.
ummm…gay sex is available everywhere already
ummm…Weiner “is” gay
ummm…morality ought to be regulated by conscience not by (criminal) law where all affected consent to their own behavior
ummm…isn’t the reason you think you should be able to go around unvaccinated and refuse to make cakes for “gay” weddings, because you think government shouldn’t regulate your conscience?
ummm…see how this works?
YFC, what is the connection between prostitution and as you put it, …isn’t the reason you think you should be able to go around unvaccinated and refuse to make cakes for “gay” weddings” You do have an amazing ability to confuse apples with oranges.
No, YFC. This State Senator is well-known for wasting time in his job, seeking the moral destruction of California. He happens to be “Gay,” while Gov. Newsom, a politician who also wastes time in office, seeking the moral destruction of California, happens to be “straight,” or “normal.” Both men are extremely immoral and immature. (One may soon be leaving office– but both should be booted out.) Morality must be regulated by stern laws, to protect a community from crimes of the morally weak, evil, criminal and sinful — and to especially protect the weak, vulnerable, and young, from criminals. Mankind is basically weak and sinful. Only a very few mature individuals really live by a good moral conscience. Sex is not a sinful “party game,” between “consenting adults.” Our Bible clearly states that sex is a responsibility of a Traditional (Man-Woman) Marriage, as ordained by Almighty God.
Our Bible is not the Basis for the American Constitution or its laws. In fact, it is prohibited by the first amendment from being so.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
YFC just admitted how the tentacles of homosexual activity, approval and mindset permeate everything. Once the sin is accepted and promoted, the negative ripple effects become politicized in a variety of ways, none of them good. Yes, we see how it works.
I think morality should be regulated by law like it used to be.
there are 40 state senators and 80 state assmblymen/gals.
120 of the biggest prostitutes in California.
That’s quite enuff. Don’t need no more.
No. Morality must be regulated by stern laws. Mankind is basically weak and sinful. Only a very few mature individuals really live by a good moral conscience. Sex is not a “party game,” between “consenting adults.” Our Bible clearly states that sex is a responsibility of a Traditional (Man-Woman) Marriage, as ordained by Almighty God. It is for the Married Mom and Dad to bring children into the world, by the Divine Hand of the Loving Creator.
“stern?” This post was written by me, Christifidelis! Not “stern!” My post of Sept. 2, at 10:19am, actually was shortened. Looks like they stuck part of it in a post of 9:48 am, with the name “stern” attached, instead of “Christifidelis!”
Maybe you forgot to put your name on it and instead of putting it in as anonymous, they take a word from your post and put it in as your name. Thanks for letting us know it was you.
The California Catholic Conference is asking us all to contact our State Assembly members to urge them to vote “No” on a new Assisted Suicide Bill, SB 380. So-called “Assisted Suicide” is murder.
Good idea but only a waste of time when you’re dealing with California democrats.
Mojave– I know. Talking to them, or to their secretaries or aides, can be so discouraging! But most all of them are very polite, and will take your message in detail, politely, even if they disagree with it. That is their job, serving the constituents. If they get lots of similar letters, phone calls, and in-person messages on a certain subject, it does have an effect. The Holy Spirit can help us express our messages effectively. Great big groups delivering a certain message, are most helpful– such as a large Senior Citizens’ or Handicapped group, lobbying against Assisted Suicide. Never give up! If success for an important issue doesn’t work out now– maybe God can help success come about later, in an unexpected way. Perseverance is the key.
Soon in California prostitutes will only be arrested if they are not wearing a mask.
What upset me and many about the idol worship in the Vatican Gardens is that Pope Francis could have stopped it at any time, but did not. No one should place a pagan idol in any Catholic church. Also the poster of the woman nursing a child on one side and a baby pig on the other was just disgusting and insulting to every decent Christian woman, and it was allowed into the church’s also.
Life Site News reported that when the idols were taken out of the church, where they did not belong, and thrown into the Tiber, that Pope Francis apologized to the idolaters instead of telling them not to do it again.
I meant to put the post above under the article “Archbishop Cordileone praises ‘the real renewal of the Chruch’ ” It makes no sense under this article and how it landed here, I do not know. I must have switched articles than posted without out realizing it. The editor can delete it if he wants, unless it can be put under the right article. Sorry for the confusion.
Anne TE, after looking up what you were referring to and reading a lifesitenews blog about it, my conclusion is: Satan did a great job distracting people from the real issues that should be addressed by Christians in the Amazon. Two mentioned was the annihilation of indigenous peoples and the lack of holiness of Christians there.
I was upset by the same thing as you were. But I am not an expert on the Amazon. I do know that there are cultures in the world, especially near the equator, that do not have the same sense about nudity that we do (or did.)
I am not going to judge Pope Francis. There have been many distortions in the media concerning him. I do not know. I trust God. If someone had walked in when I was reading the blog and saw the picture, they would have said “What are you looking at? You are supposed to be a Christian. That is awful.”
I am wondering if the picture (which I agree should not be in a Church) was meant to show how far the Amazon has been destroyed that baby animals are seeking food from humans. And also the poverty of the area that all a woman could give the starving animal was her own breast milk. But I do not know.
